I whipped up this little guy, well he’s around 18″ long, the other day as a belated birthday gift for a little friend who turned 2 last month. I drew out this pattern a couple years ago for another boy birthday. We have an influx of boys around here, and since I enjoy making and giving handmade to the littles in my life I have come up with a couple boyish toys to make.
I kept this guy simple, one fabric on the front and a brighter pattern on the back. I cut a strip of black felt and cut out the triangles from it to make the spears? Hmm.. not sure what there called. :)
I like to add a little personalization to stuff to make it more special, so I hand stitched on a felt B to the front.
You can see, there is no detail on the face or anywhere except the B. But it could always be added. This is just a simple stuffed dinosaur that can be used for play or sleeping.
I think I might try to make a few for the shop since they simple and perfect for boys which lets be honest aside from cars and trucks there’s not a lot of boy stuff out there. Although yes, for the Dinosaur loving girl in your house, this could be made with cute girly fabric too. :)
Check back later this week I am working on Luke’s Favorite Things post by request from our friends over at Fluff&Nonsense.
